Sports And Parenting

A recent Sports Illustrated cover showed a man calling himself Wilt Chamberlain’s son. Why on the cover and why Wilt? The Big Dipper is called the most transformative athlete in basketball, maybe all sports. But he’s dead. Been dead a while. Why drag up the past? I read the story from a father’s perspective.

Well. . .That Was Weird: The 2014 Sports Year in Review, Part I

Last year I went on record, declaring 2013 to be the weirdest sports year ever.  I firmly believe that that will continue to hold up.  But, damn, 2014 was a year for the record books, too.  If 2013 was Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game, then 2014 is definitely Kobe’s 81-pointer.
